So this error message is typical of openswan v1 and it looks like that my upgrade had fail... Am i right? How can i be sure that all components of openswan are from version 2.4.7 ? Is there a method to verify that? Or should i delete all components of openswan v1 before by checking list of file in install part of the makefile?

Thanks again for your help.
